Kal’s Kickstarter Kills



Courtesy Citybizlist – When Kevin Kallaugher, a freelance cartoonist for The Economist for all of 35 years and currently at The Baltimore Sun, set out to produce a coffee-table book, he didn’t seek out a literary agent or publisher. Instead, on Jan. 14, he set up a project on the crowdsourcing site Kickstarter, aiming to raise a modest $20,000.

Brown Paper Blogger launches Kickstarter Campaign


support-our-kickstarterOne of our favorite bloggers Sara Barnes — check out our interview with her  — has just launched with her pal and collaborator Lisa Perrin a Kickstarter for a new art project.

“Lisa and I are in our final year of MICA’s MFA Illustration Practice program and currently working on our year-long thesis project. Part of our thesis work involves Píccolo, a collaborative illustration project dedicated to celebrating the small things. We have big plans for Píccolo, our ultimate goal being to the production of pop-up shops around Baltimore that bring small illustrated products to the people,” Sara writes.

Mommy, Where Do Campaign Funds Come From?


A recent article in The Examiner compared the sources and sizes of Baltimore’s Democratic mayoral candidates’ campaign funds.

In terms of cash on hand, incumbent Stephanie Rawlings-Blake finds herself in an almost luxuriously comfortable lead with $1.4 million. Compare that to the funds of Catherine Pugh or Otis Rolley, the mayor’s stiffest competition, who have each raised around $250,000 over the course of the entire campaign.

Rawlings-Blake’s money tends to come from unions and businesses; Rolley’s from individuals; Pugh’s from elected officials, loans, and one Scott Donahoo, a car dealer who donated $75,000 to the Pugh campaign.

Perhaps hoping that distancing himself from our disgraced former mayor was worth $1,000, Rolley returned the grand donated to his campaign by Sheila Dixon. Pugh took it.

What do you think? Do the sources of campaign funds give us important information about the candidates? Or is it just another distraction from the real issues?

Despite the misprint on the sample ballot sent out by the state board of elections, the Democratic primary (which nearly all news outlets are calling “election day”) is September 13.
